Amanda Bynes

I'm Not Crazy

9/17/2012 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0916-amanda-bynes-1Amanda Bynes is ADAMANT ... she's not crazy AND she definitely doesn't smoke weed in her car ... that's what the actress is telling close friends.

Amanda's friends have been reaching out lately because they want to help her ... but she's telling them to back off because "everything's fine."

The actress says ... the stories about her mental state "are being blown way out of proportion."

She is also telling friends ... the picture TMZ posted of her smoking from a drug pipe inside her car (below) is not what it seems. She says she was smoking tobacco ... despite the fact that her cup-holders had remnants of what appeared to be marijuana.

As we previously reported, we spoke with several people who have witnessed Amanda's behavior recently, who say she's chatting with inanimate objects ... talking to herself in the gym ... and they fear she may be suffering from serious mental issues.

In other Amanda news ... she's still facing TWO hit-and-run charges, one DUI charge and her license is still suspended. And her car got impounded yesterday.

Amanda that could have been tabacco it could have been marijuanna. At this point you chose not to abide by a judge and drive your car It is Banged up pretty bad. You have a problem with something and you should take your friends advise and start getting some serious help before you injure yourself or some one else,

Who cares? I'm so over this nutjob already. Throw the b**** in jail, or a mental hospital, or wherever, but keep her stupid a$$ off the roads.

Amanda is living in a world of DENIAL ...
Classic behavior of those with addiction issues ... or someone living in the unstable mental state of delusion and altered reality.
.
Amanda, you have fallen down the rabbit hole...GET HELP.

I'm already bored with this story. Honestly, who cares. I'm sure she's not crazy like TMZ keeps insisting. Her career went down the toilet and she became a druggie so she's doing crazy s*** like druggies do.

Amanda, So taking a little trip down denial, are we? So much easier trying to deny substance abuse rather than getting help, isn't it Amanda?

Time for a family member to file for conservatorship to get her help. She certainly won't do it on her own.

She's going for the classic routine. Community Service, Anonymous Donation to the LAPD and the County DA's Office, and then back to celebrity status.

Someone needs to just keep her out of the public eye for a while shes been in the news for the wrong reasons recently. I really hope she sorts herself out and her parents need to get her some help. Just because your child becomes an adult doesnt mean they should just leave her. She has never been in trouble before so I do believe something is wrong with her. She can still clean up her image shes nowhere like Lohan yet she needs to do her jailtime or probation whatever and get some medical help and move on from this. You can do this Amanda.
